I too enjoy the walks, it is like taking a walk with Larry and Jake.
Sometimes it sounds like the traffic is a little too close and the train
sounded like it was in the room with me.

Personally, I love the relaxed and casual feeling of Lary's walks. Even
the information is a little slower in coming, it adds a personal touch
it, so it's not like we're listening to a tutorial. Not that I don't
tutorials, it's just that I do enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Besides, we
should slow down once in a while. LOL!
I also find that listening to the environment as he walks along, and his

easy way of keeping up a conversation, which he does very well at I
add, just makes the podcast more enjoyable.
So here's to you, Lary and Jake, and your walks!
Sincerely, Jamie
